Last Wednesday afternoon, all eyes were on Metter High School as the community watched five senior student-athletes, TJ Davis, Elijah Oglesby, Elijah Dekle, Ahmod Collins and Kristen Crooms, commit to play their respective sport at the college legel.
TJ Davis signs with FSU
Phe most anticipated signing of the afternoon was that of TJ Davis. Davis’ table was neatly decorated with his final two choices, Georgia Tech and Florida State University, but by the end of his speech, he made it clear his intentions were to play for FSU.
“I love everything about Florida State’s campus. I was drawn to the environment, the traditions, the players and the coaches when I visited,” Davis said.
Davis feels he would not be where he is today if it wasn’t for his dad (Tavaris Davis), coaches, teammates, family and community.
“This opportunity puts both myself and my family in a better situation. I am able to get an affordable education and possibly play at an even higher level,” he said.
